“Many of life’s failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up.”
This quote was famously made by renowned American inventor and businessman Thomas Alva Edison. Yes, he is the man who invented the bulb!
He is known for his contribution to the development of several devices in various fields including electric power generation, mass communication (telegraph and telephone), sound recording (phonograph), and motion pictures (motion picture camera).
He is a figure of inspiration. Despite having failed 2774 times as he himself records with the creation of the bulb, he never gave up and succeeded!
